After you have strung your last bead, string a 2x2 crimp bead onto the Stretch Magic.

Step 3

Slide the other end of the Stretch Magic through the crimp bead so the ends of the elastic are facing in opposite directions.

Step 4

Pull both ends of the Stretch Magic until the beads are right up next to the crimp bead.

Step 5

Use the tips of the chain nose pliers to grasp the crimp bead.

Step 6

Squeeze the crimp bead flat with the chain nose pliers.

Step 7

Cut off the excess elastic with a sharp pair of scissors.
